CALL FOR SPECIAL ISSUE ON HRM & EMPLOYABILITY

 

13 November 2017

 

Together with Jasmijn van Harten, Nele de Cuyper, David Guest, Mel Fugate, and Anneleen Forrier, I’m editing a special issue on ‘HRM and employability: an international perspective’. The call for papers is now published on the website of the International Journal of HRM. For more information see here.

 

Taken together, the objective of the proposed Special Issue is to provide an analysis and to progress our understanding of how HRM affects workers’ employability. In particular, we invite both theoretical and empirical contributions that illuminate the central question as to how and under what circumstances HRM impacts workers’ employability and subsequent outcomes. We focus our Special Issue call in two primary yet broad areas. The first research avenue focuses on the content of HRM as well as its implementation, to understand how HRM impacts employability and subsequent outcomes. The second avenue considers the micro, meso and macro level circumstances under which HRM affects employability and subsequent outcomes.

 

Deadline for submission: 1st of August 2018.

Together with PeterLeisink, Lotte Andersen, Gene Brewer, Christian Jacobsen, and Wouter Vandenabeele , I’m editing a book entitled ‘Managing for public service performance: How people and values make a difference’.

 

The book consists of 16 co-authored chapters organized in three parts: (1) key concepts and the public sector context, (2) Public management and human resource management, and (3) Value chain mechanisms and employee and organizational outcomes. In Lausanne we organized a two-day book workshop to discuss the draft chapters.
